Thoughts from the field: Ed Schultz on the pleasures of working the land

Updated: Apr 18

The Year On The Field project is more than a simple collaboration and research project. It is also about experiences, impressions and subjective perceptions of individual farmers and their relationship to their soil, work animals and implements. Our project can therefore also serve to highlight the value of these special relationships in a wider context.


There is a special bond between the farmer, the working animal and the soil

We are therefore pleased to present a particularly impressive example from our series "Thoughts from the field": join Ed Schultz of Colonial Williamsburg in the field and learn firsthand about the pleasures of plowing and working the land with his work horse.
